Trying out a new technique for my backgrounds after watching a number of youtube videos and joining some facebook groups for ideas. I’ve been dying to try for a long time now and snagged a bottle of pouring medium for free during the black friday sales. I’ve since learned Floetrol is cheaper, but my first attempts are with Liquitex.
I’m loving my first attempts!
Here’s a dirty pour with contrasting colors using Liquitex Pouring medium. The purple is pearl-ex powder suspended in medium. When it dried it had a lot of dimension, though I would have used more if I knew how translucent it was.
Here is a dark textured canvas with prussian blues and teals. I learned from this one that translucent colors make for a much more harmonized result. It’s beautiful for the night sky I intended. I will be adding one of my lantern foxes. When it dried a lot of that contrast was lost but it will work better as a background as a result. I plan to attempt that scheme again, this time adding a tiny bit of titanium white to help make the paint more opaque.
